Jessica Dayon's Precut Parade Book Tour

Friday, September 30, 2022

 Hi friends!
Today I am sharing a project I made
from my friend, Jessica Dayon's new book,
Precut Parade.


Jessica's book includes 9 precut-friendly quilt patterns;
3 for Jelly Rolls, 3 for Layer Cakes, and 3 for Fat Quarters!
All of the patterns in the book are beautiful, traditional designs.
I chose to do this fat quarter-friendly pattern called Sparker!

If you know me at all, you know that I love red, white, and blue quilts
 They're classic, striking, and never go out of style!
So Jessica's Sparkler quilt really spoke to me. 

I wanted to try something completely different though
so I tried a more colorful version using an assortment of 
colors and fabric lines from my stash.


There are two blocks in this quilt so it was really fun to make!


I used the border fabric
(which is from the fabric line, Summers End by
Alison Janssen for FIGO) as the jumping-off point
for my color palette.  I am a big fan of
Alison Janssen and I love the colors in that print -
oranges, pinks, lavenders, golds, and browns.
Perfect for this time of year!


For the back, I used Solar in Lavender 
from Ruby Star Society's Warp and Weft Heirloom collection 
by Alexia Abegg.  For the binding, I used Stitch in Saddle 
from the same line.  They're both wovens so they're very soft!


I had my awesome quilter, Jen Ostler in Highlalnd, UT
quilt it for me using the Interlocking Orange Peel design by Karlee Porter.


I always add one of the simple quilt labels
that I get from Ever Emblem on Etsy.  You can choose any of their labels
and customize them to your liking.  I get the 2" cotton fold-over, sew-in labels.


It's a big quilt; it finishes at 75-1/2" x 88-1/2".


This was such a fun project!  Jessica always writes
fantastic patterns and there are lots of other
quilts in the book that I would love to make!
Including this Layer Cake pattern, called Two Step:


Don't we all have some precuts in our stash that we
want to turn into a quilt? Precut Parade is just the ticket there!


My Sparkler quilt is actually for sale right now
along with a bunch of other quilts!
